NEW- [verses below]
All the videos were made today- I tried to hit on a few news issues and made some comments on the upcoming Acts study.
The big news of the last few days was the firing of FBI director James Comey.

The liberals see a cover up- the conservatives see nothing wrong with it.
And this will go on for at least another week [52 of them?] consuming the news with stupidity.

As a news watcher- many thought Comey should have been fired months ago- simply because he made the public case against Hillary on the email thing- saying ‘gross negligence’ – which is laymen s terms that met the criteria for an indictment.

Yet- he chose not to indict.
Others- in the legal field- thought he bungled it.

The Democrats called for his ouster months ago- because he revealed an opening up of the email investigation days before the election.

They wanted him gone.

Of course they now say Trump didn’t fire him for all the reasons they thought he should have been fired [Probably not].

Therefore they claim he should not have been fired.
Even though they said he should be fired.

Ok- I think you see the game- and both sides play it.

I made a few comments on the Hannah Overton case- which I talked about before.
And made a few comments on Acts 12-

And had David Martin on video today- he is new to Facebook and hopefully his old Friends who have not seen him in years will enjoy.

That’s it for today- Caught some traffic on the way back form San Antonio and won’t teach much on this post.

These ‘daily roll outs’ are intended to be done in the same day I make them.
I’ll do the in depth teaching in a week or so when The Acts 12 post goes up.

God bless you all- yes- my liberal friends who see ‘Nixon’ in the Trump firing- and my conservative friends who see nothing wrong with it.

I think Hillary might not be too happy about the firing of Comey- a new FBI head might go back and do something about the server- really [remember- she had the server ‘wiped’ AFTER she knew she was being investigated- which in itself is destroying evidence. There were about a months worth of emails that were ‘wiped’ and never found- those were emails made during the time of the Libya debacle- why were those wiped? They had nothing at all to do with weddings and kids stuff- the ‘normal’ person would be charged with destroying evidence- oh well- the story never ends].

Either way- that’s it for today.

PAST POSTS [verses below]
(739)ACTS 12- Herod kills James [not the brother of Jesus who is one of the lead Apostles at Jerusalem] and puts Peter in jail. The church has a prayer meeting for Peter and an angel goes into the cell and wakes Peter up. He leads him outside the city and frees him. Peter thinks it’s a vision and realizes it really is happening! Note how real their visions and dreams must have been, Peter at times can not determine fact from vision! He shows up at the prayer meeting and a girl named Rhoda hears a knock at the door. She asks ‘who is it’? He says ‘It’s me, Peter!’ She can’t believe it and leaves him standing at the door! She tells the prayer group ‘it’s Peter’ they tell her ‘no way, maybe his angel?’ Funny, you can believe his angel showed up, but no way could the Lord deliver him from jail. At the end of this chapter we see the return of Paul and Barnabas after they brought the relief money to the saints at Jerusalem. It calls it ‘their ministry’. This early church did not see ‘the ministry’ as the actual business and the need to raise funds for the ‘church’. Now, it’s fine to pool your money for good cause’s with other believers. When I teach we are not ‘under the tithe’ this does not mean we shouldn’t support good ministries with 10 percent or more of our money. The point is, here we see Peter going back out to the field, Paul and Barnabas returning back from ‘the field’. Spontaneous prayer meetings. No set time or way to give offerings, just a true freedom of giving themselves away for the cause of Christ. Leadership does exist, but the normal function and flow of this church is not centered around ‘the Sunday Sabbath’ [EEK!] There is a real sense of this community of believers being led by the Spirit. It would be wrong to say ‘hey, Phillip went out on his own! He is not under the local church covering’! Or ‘now that we are back from Jerusalem, lets ask Pastor so and so [the supposed Pastor of the ‘church at Antioch’] what’s next’. There were no ‘Pastors’ in the sense of the fulltime Christian minister who oversees the ordinances on Sunday. Now, these developments will arise as the centuries progress. Many good Pastors and Priests will function this way for centuries. They will see the church ‘building’ as ‘the church’. Our Catholic brothers will begin to see ‘the altar’ as the actual place ‘in the church’ that Jesus Body is ‘re offered’ [presented] as a ‘bloodless sacrifice’ for the salvation of the world. All developments that are not seen in Acts. The point is, we limit the flow of Gods Spirit thru his people when we regress from ‘the true has now come’ [the whole reality of Jesus and the church being the real image of things. The law and it’s shadows were only an incomplete picture]. When we as believers go back to ‘the shadows’ thinking that form and ‘pictures of things’ [symbols] are the way we will touch the world, then we lose the reality of us being the actual people of God showing the world Christ thru our unselfish lives. Jesus said when the people of God love each other and lay their own desires and goals down for his Kingdom, then the world will see our actions and believe. Jesus did leave us memorials ‘do this in remembrance of me’ ‘as often as you do this you SHOW the Lords death till he come’. I do realize that the church does have an element of ‘presenting thru picture [art] the Lords death and resurrection’ [passion plays and so forth] but when we lose the real fellowship mentality of this first century church, we then lose the greatest picture of all. Being the actual functioning Body of Christ on earth. John writes ‘how can you say you love God, who you don’t see. When you can’t love your brother, who you do see?’ [1st John] the New Testament clearly shows us that the love we have in word and deed is the greatest ‘sacramental’ picture we can declare to the world. Our Catholic friends have a song ‘they will know we are Christians by our love, by our love. Yes they’ll know we are Christians by our love’. I agree.
